Come on, feel the noise! With the recent World Cup brouhaha, vuvuzelas were seen everywhere. In honor of this controversial horn, we asked you to share with us your "noisiest" Lomographs. Here are the top five winning shots!
A vuvuzela is a 2-ft plastic instrument that’s also a World Cup staple. The intense noise that it makes can lead to hearing loss, prompting several organizations to ban its use in events. This doesn’t stop us from paying tribute though – and so we invited you to submit pictures showing your favorite noisemakers, in the form of vuvuzelas, rock bands, barking dogs, and whatnot! Congratulations to the winners – you win 5 Piggies each!
For our winners, please head on to our new Member’s Benefits FAQ section for queries on Piggy Points and further information. Congratulations and thank you for continuously supporting our rumbles!
We asked you if your photos were worthy of having their own exhibit, from the accidental shot that was taken from your hip or even the posed perfection you asked of your subjects. And you delivered! Check out the exhibit-worthy winners!
